Five villages in the Roslyn area will hold elections on Sept. 15, with only one having contested races.

The village elections were originally scheduled for March 18, but following two reschedulings due to the coronavirus, Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued an executive order for all village elections to take place Sept. 15.


Village of Roslyn Deputy Mayor Marshall Bernstein and Trustee Craig Westergard are unopposed for their seats. Voting will take place at Roslyn Village Hall at 1200 Old Northern Blvd. from noon to 9 p.m.


Two trustees from Roslyn Estates, Brian Feingold and Stephen Fox, will be running unopposed for their seats.

Voting will take place at Village Hall, 25 The Tulips in Roslyn, from 12:30 to 9 p.m.


Trustees Clara Pomerantz and Emanuel Zuckerman are running unopposed for re-election under the Unity Party banner.

Voting will take place at Village Hall, 209 Harbor Hill Road in East Hills, from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.


While the village will be electing a mayor and two trustees, incumbent Mayor Fred Carillo will not run again after spending 38 years on the board. Carillo did not comment when reached.

Trustee Edward Novick is running unopposed for mayor, while Deputy Mayor Marina Chimerine is running unopposed for another term as a trustee. Former Trustee Andrew Weinberg is running for Novick’s seat on the board.


The mayor’s seat and three spots on the Flower Hill Board of Trustees are contested for the first time in several years.

Mayor Brian Herrington, who took office after the death of Mayor Robert McNamara in April, is running for mayor under the Flower Hill Party banner, with incumbents Deputy Mayor Randall Rosenbaum and Trustee Gary Lewandowski on his slate.

McNamara, who was running for a trustee position under the same party at the time of his death, will remain on the ballot as per the rules of the executive order, which call for candidates on the ballots to remain unchanged.

Under the Liberty Party banner, three-year Trustee Kate Hirsch is running for mayor, with residents Diane Turner, Jay Silverman and Jeffrey Greilsheimer rounding out her slate.

The elections, originally planned for the spring, saw Hirsch challenge the Flower Hill Party’s petition with the aim of having it thrown out, only for the Nassau County Board of Elections to rule in the party’s favor. Hirsch then filed an ethics complaint against Flower Hill’s chief election officer, village Administrator Ronnie Shatzkamer, alleging that she was assisting the Flower Hill Party in its campaign, with both Shatzkamer and Herrington denying the allegations.

Flower Hill’s election will take place from noon to 9 p.m., with residents voting at Village Hall at 1 Bonnie Heights Road in Manhasset.
